Yet [*/+/^] : 27.225 MHz, Some Final Measures; A Praise Of The Love Of God For Humanity, After John 3:16

I praise God, and my Savior Christ, for their Love of Humankind.

We were meant to be the sentience of the Cosmos Christ designed.

Evil skewed our perceptions, but Christ, Himself, has realigned

our souls with a Faith no doubter or skeptic can undermind.

Thank you for the comment.  I

Thank you for the comment.  I think the Christian Faith has been very severely undermined by two currents of thought in my country:  that John 3:16 is the supreme Scripture (it probably is, but not at the expense of the other New Testament books), and that God is a wrathful judge who has to be placated by the death of His Only Son, and by our fear of His anger.  I prefer the Orthodox interpretation of Christ's work on the Cross, and their characterization that God loves humanity overwhelmingly.  On a Russian Orthodox website, just this very night, I read some words, which I will quote here:  "There is absolutely nothing we can do to make God stop desiring us."  As one who has been burdened, decades ago, with a sense of sin, and with an idea that God "puts up with me" (the way my own Father put up with me), it is a welcome change, even an excting one, to feel "desirable" in God's own heart.  Personally, I believe that the schism between the Western and Eastern Churches cost us, in the West, far more that we have ever fully realized.
